Nice Historic Buildings/Interesting State Park
If you want to drive 20 to 25 miles to the South of Cedar City, you can be treated to the Kolob Canyons of Zion National Park! The finger canyons are worth the trip. You can drive to an over look or do some hiking on a number of trails.Take a look at the NPS.GOV website - Zion National Park for more information.more
I think that the most amazing tourist spot in Southern Utah is Zion National Park. I take my daughters hiking there all the time. They have a fantastic shuttle system in the park (during late spring/summer/early fall driving in certain parts of the park is prohibited) and the shuttle drivers are very interesting and knowlegable. They have...more
If you interested in seeing Native American Rock Art, Parowan Gap is a good place to visit. It isn't as amazing as alot of the sights in South Eastern Utah, Arizona or Mesa Verde, but if you are in the area and have time it's a nice stop. It's about 20 miles north of Cedar City. It is a small site, so there isn't any rangers there. It would be a...more
This is a VERY out of the way site, but I really enjoyed it. If you are into history, then this is a place you would like. It gives alot of details about the Mountain Meadows massacre. Because of it's out of the way location, there isn't alot of traffic. When we went, we were the only ones there. http://mtnmeadows.org/more
On main street in Cedar City is the Iron Mission State Park. It is a fun little museum that tells a lot about Cedar City, and it's Native American and Pioneer roots. Also, if you have time, you can take a 20 minute drive west of Cedar City and see the ruins of the original Iron Town. But watch out, it is very muddy in late winter/early spring when...more
In the summertime, the Shakespearean Festival is held at Southern Utah University. There are several plays showing every night. It would be a good idea to order you tickets in advance. The website is www.bard.org. They also have a nightly greenshow that is free.Tuacan "theatre in the desert" also has shows every night in the summer and fall. Tuacan...more

Cedar City is a great place to visit, but there is no nightlife here. There are a couple of bars in town, but I would avoid them. There isn't any good music, and they don't serve cocktails. Just 3.2% Utah beer, and REALLY bad karaoke!
When stopping or passing through Cedar Breaks, make good us of WalMart or other stores before you go skiing or hiking. I grabbed some water and food. Decent price and right off the main road.
Where we stayed in Cedar City...close to Bryce....they held lots of festivals for the locals.....over priced Indian Jewelary....hand made blankets way too expensive......the best way is actually when your driving and you see a stand off to the side of the road...there will be Indians selling their goods....very reasonable...great to make a deal with....better then dealing with prices in any activity for locals. The Indians offer beautiful hand made items...they are well worth looking at....forget the shops in town...too high...You will see lots of these side road stands with native Indians,,,,check it out..very friendly people.

Fondest memory: Cedar has a great small-town atmosphere. The streets are designed well and so the traffic is great. Cedar is know for the Utah Shakespearean Festival.
